Game Developer (Unreal)
As part of LIVs main quest line is to empower VR content creators and game developers to connect with, and interact with their audiences in real-time, and as part of that we are building a LIV engine showcase called StreamCom.
StreamCom is a VR game set in cyberspace, where Players (Duelists) challenge oppressive mafia-like Collectives to break their grip on the world. Every week, on the Day of the Duels, the Collectives open their doors, and Duelists fight their way up the ranks in a bid to unseat the Tyrant — the leader of the Collective.
LIV has the biggest creator user base in VR behind it, and StreamCom has the the biggest VR streamers eager to get their hands on it. Your work will directly land in their hands, and with their help we'll iterate to build what we envision, and what our players want.
We are not working against a deadline -- we are working towards an end user experience and vision. Expect lots of experimentation!
